  • Speed up WordPress on DreamHost with OPcache
    Installing OPcache can improve your site’s performance by decreasing the php execution process when a script is requested. DreamHost permits a user to log into the server through secure shell with user level permissions. Since user level permissions cannot install software, the module will need to be manually compiled.
  • Reduce TIME_WAIT socket connections | Linux BrigadeReduce TIME_WAIT socket connections in Apache/Linux
    Some time in your life you’ll run across an Apache server that always has tons of TIME_WAIT connections just seeming to hang out. While these don’t take up as many resources as an ESTABLISHED connection, why keep them around so long? This short article will show you how to identify how many you have, and how to tell your server to reduce them, reuse and recycle them (see, recycling IS a good thing).
  • Analyzing Apache Log Files < System | The Art of Web
    There are many different packages that allow you to generate reports on who’s visiting your site and what they’re doing. The most popular at this time appear to be “Analog”, “The Webalizer” and “AWStats” which are installed by default on many shared servers. While such programs generate attractive reports, they only scratch the surface of what the log files can tell you. In this section we look at ways you can delve more deeply – focussing on the use of simple command line tools, particularly grep, awk and sed.

  • /bin/bash based SSL/TLS tester: testssl.sh – testssl.sh is a free command line tool which checks a server's service on any port for the support of TLS/SSL ciphers, protocols as well as recent cryptographic flaws and more. [ via quasi.dot: https://delicious.com/farmando ]
  • Policy NAT for L2L VPN • LearnIOS.com – I kind of missed the wood for the trees here. The static policy NAT is failing because you are trying to map a network 192.168.0.0 to a single IP address 172.20.n.1. However it's just occured, why are you doing policy NAT for the Internet. I tested in lab and if you do this
  • Encrypted Data Bags on Cloud on AWS – Many customers have asked us how they should handle shared secrets, passwords and other sensitive data in Chef and now we have a good solution. With the release of our stable-v4 stack, we introduced Chef 10 to the platform, and with it came data bags. Now with the 3.0 release of the engineyard gem, we can officially support data bags and encrypted data bags. You may be wondering what data bags are, how data bags work or how to implement data bags. This blog post will walk you through the entire process.
  • How to set disk alignment in Linux | Dirty Cache – As you might know, if disk partitions containing Oracle datafiles are not aligned with the underlying storage system, then some I/O’s can suffer from some overhead as they are effectively translated in two I/O’s. If you want more info, google for “EMC disk alignment” and you’ll find plenty of information, explaining the issue.
  • Add Private Route 53 DNS to your AWS VPC | CloudTrek – A really cool feature of Amazon’s Route 53 DNS Management Service is the private hosted DNS zone.  Basically, you get the ability to manage the DNS in your private VPC without setting up your own DNS infrastructure (yuck!) [ Just a friendly reminder Note 1: the resolution is working only inside the VPC. Note 2: if you don't have the AmazonProvidedDNS in your DHCP-OPTION you won't resolve the zone. Note 3: if you are using linux, you can use as DNS 169.254.169.253 it won't work on windows 2008 Ref: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonVPC/latest/UserGuide/VPC_DHCP_Options.html http://docs.aws.amazon.com/Route53/latest/DeveloperGuide/hosted-zones-private.html http://aws.amazon.com/route53/faqs/ ]
